How the test works

Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

My name is Philippe and I love being a postman! Yes, I must get up very early and it can be tiring because I walk a lot. But I do an important job and I feel very useful. Plus, I am very sociable and because I work in a small village, I know everyone! I also have funny stories: people send crazy things sometimes!
